Crihan – Tura De Noapte EP [Eliptic]

Bucharest-based record label Eliptic returns with “Tura De Noapte EP” delivered by Crihan, a well-known presence in the local electronic dance music scene for some time now. The 12” features three original cuts and early support comes from Cezar, Rhadoo, Praslea and Petre Inspirescu. Founded in 2016 by Iulian Ganovici aka Julian and Fengda Carissa, the imprint brought forward amazing sounds from the likes of Gias, Timofti, Mihigh and ZXC until now, with more to be dispatched in the future.

Passionate about music from an early age, Alin Crihan has been crafting his skills as a DJ and producer since 2004, continuously evolving and perfecting his techniques. Born and raised in Targu-Mures in the heart of Transylvania, he moves to Bucharest in 2009 going deeper into more experimental territories of sound. His debut came in early 2015 with releases on Naural and Ultrastretch, followed by works dropped on truelovesounds, More Than Music and Catren in the next years. In 2017 he founds his own musical playground in the form of Mezin, where we can find two amazing pressings signed by him. As a selector, he shared the decks with a lot of established artists in the scene, such as Sepp, Sammy Dee, Camelia, Cem Ozden, Valentino Kanzyiani, Maayan Nidam, Ada Kaleh, Bryz, Sublee, Lizz and many many others.

Side A features “Schimbul 1”, a hypnotic minimalistic composition dominated by a feminine vocal sample that stands out as the main ingredient. The steady percussion and the solid bassline are backed-up by intricate micropatterns and eerie background textures. Perfect for an afterparty session. On Side B, we first find “Schimbul 2”, a groovy cut with a focus on its percussive elements. With multiple variations, the sound is deeper and offers heavy modulations as the layers unfold. Closing the wax, “Schimbul 3” provides an electric feeling, with throbbing synth sequences and filtered textures evolving in the background while a vocal sample will make you “Smile” from time to time. Minimal at its finest right here.
